Hannah "Liz" Jordan is the senior resident assistant for Irwin Hall. As a senior art history and business major at Baker, Liz is involved in the BU cross country team, BRaV, and FCA. She is from Leavenworth, Kan., and decided to come to Baker because the first time she stepped on campus, she felt like she was at home. Liz enjoys reading, traveling (she visited 36 cities in the US, UK, Europe and Middle East last year!), and doing puzzles in her spare time. She can't wait to get to know all of her residents.

Alexia "Lexi" Nyoni is a junior accounting and business major from Harare, Zimbabwe. She is an active member of Mungano and Speech Choir. Lexi chose Baker because a family member recommended it to her. She loves shopping, gummy bears and reading romance novels. She enjoys being an RA because she loves meeting new people and making new friends!

Lauren Fleener is a senior sociology major from Oak Grove, Mo. She chose Baker because it "felt like home." Lauren enjoys being around animals, reading, watching sports, being with friends, shopping and music. Her favorite color is green and she is looking forward to getting to know new faces and creating new relationships with first-year students.

Mercedes Johnson-Ishmon is a junior biology major from El Paso, Texas. She is part of the BU track team and she enjoys dancing, smiling and cooking. She chose Baker because of the small campus and the track scholarship she received for being an outstanding athlete. She became an RA in order to create caring relationships with residents. "I want them to feel comfortable around me and come to me with any problems they may have."

Sione Maumau hails from Highlands Ranch, Calif., and is a sophomore business major who plays BU football. He enjoys eating Oreos, the color blue, and being a weight room supervisor. He is looking forward to being an RA this year so that he can make new friends and organize good programs for the residents.
